Library Secrets, part 4

Everyone knows we have books. Regular print and large print. But did you know that we also have a few in Braille?

Today we’re going to let you in on a cool secret. We have a copy of the New Testament from the Bible written in Braille. It takes up 18 volumes!

These can’t be checked out. But they’re still really cool to look at. Please be careful with them though, they’re old.

Here’s something that might help if you ever want to try and read a few words.

The Braille Bible isn’t all we have. There are a couple of children’s books available in Braille. We also have books that are written on the general topic of learning about the Braille system. Check them out!
